HI this is DRB and I would be happy to help you with Miss Bella...give me a few minutes to compose your answer....
First you can use the Prednisone to help with this back issue...give her 5 mg of the Prednisone twice daily for 3 days, then 5 mg once daily for 3 days and then back to 2.5 mg daily. This should also help the pain she is having.
Second, why is your dog taking Prednisone for allergies when we have a much superior drug with less side effects called Apoquel? Talk to your vet about that.....
Do you have any Tramadol in your home?
Are you there?
I am standing by for questions.....
Can I assist you further?
Ok, I have to retire for the night as I have suergery early tomorrow.....if you need additional help please let me know....I check my computer every night....Sincerely, DRB
Please hit rate my service as that is the only way I am compensated. A positive rating will not close this question and I am more than happy to answer any follow up questions that you have.
Please remember my answers do not replace or supersede the advice of your veterinarian as my answers do not create a valid client patient relationship as I am unable to examine your pet. Thank you very much. DRB
